NEW YORK (CBS) – Talk show queen Oprah Winfrey has reportedly secured an interview with Katherine Jackson.

Winfrey’s production team was seen outside the Jackson family compound in Encino, Calif., Saturday, reports CNN.

However, the decision to meet with Winfrey did not resonate well with Michael Jackson’s younger brother, Randy.

The younger Jackson expressed his outrage via his Twitter account when he discovered his parents invited Winfrey, who he claims tried to influence the jury during his brother’s molestation trial, to their family home.

“I can never forget when she had the show on pedophilia during the jury deliberation process in my brother’s Santa Maria case,” he said. “That was no coincidence.”

Jackson, who also said his “stomach ached” when he learned about the meeting, went on and wrote, “I know that he would not have wanted this.”

“In fact, she is the last person on earth he would want around his children.”
